As most probably know the second installment of IDP's very own compilation is out in the shops. The compilation follows volume 1 and includes 14 never before released tracks in mixed italodance and lento style. Luckily, I got the privilege to review the entire compilation.

First track of the compilation is Alexandra Shine - Play That Game (Bietto Remix). Vocals chords are "ok" in my opinion and the lyrics could be better. The vocal ad-libs 'tutututu' is quite catchy and main melody arrives in the traditional italo-build up which works well.

Two months after their first Decibel release Spaghetti Trip, aka Federico Romanzi and Mr. Dendo, released their second EP. This EP contains 6 tracks, 4 collaborations and 2 solo productions.

Mohsen Arabasadi aka Persian Raver has been a part of the italo community since he started to produce music, but he has gotten his success producing a mix of Hands Up, Hard Dance and Hard Trance with releases on one of the biggest labels in Germany called Mental Madness. Together with his old friend from Iran, TRANE aka Mohammad Aghamohammadi he released "Zombie".

As new lento albums releases have become scarce over the last couple of years, here comes a new collaboration which brings the much needed light at the end of the tunnel. Davide Rodia, aka Mr. Dendo, and Federico Romanzi are the producers behind the project Spaghetti Trip which, according to their Facebook, was conceived in concept in 2004. Since then, they have collaborated extensively with Gigi D’Agostino and released several tracks on his albums. Nine years later, Federico and Davide have moved on to produce a number of solo tracks under their own names, and together as Spaghetti Trip. Along with Luca Francini, aka LuHa MsM, they are also producing a weekly shortcast...
